More about the BUGA

Yesterday after my visit to the BUGA I was so tired

all I wanted was a hot tea and no more walking.

Today I am looking through all the (over 1000) pics I took.

So much colour, so beautiful and such a beautiful landscape...

I am back home in Hannover today. The weather is grey.

It feels more like autumn than like summer.

I dream about planting in my little garden...

The great thing at the BUGA is that each plant has a template with its name on it.

So now I can search in the net where I can buy some of them.

Dreaming of a little shadow garden...

Today - BUGA

Today I visited the BUGA.

BUGA is short for Bundesgartenschau.

This year it is in Koblenz.

I can not show you how beautiful it was.

I just can give you some glimpses of beauty in the pics I took.

So stay tuned for some more posts today.

Finding happiness in the little things.

Do you love colour?

Rinteln, Germany 2011

I love these colourful old houses.

On our way south yesterday the traffic was not moving. So we decided to take lunch in Rinteln. We had lunch with this view. Much better than to stay longer on the street. And good to have something eaten. Our usual four hours drive south was a ten hour stop and go.

Today - thoughts on holidays

Seeing this plane over my head today-

no far far away destination waiting for me this holiday.

Just some trips with the car.

Today to the lake we call Steinhuder Meer.

It was lovely - early in the morning sun.

And tomorrow we will leave to the Rhine.

Just some days with family ahead.

Perhaps some days at the sea afterwards.

I do not know yet.

Freedom of not booking in advance.

My tune

My tune yesterday was a big:


My hubby sleeply demolished his glas of wine over lunch yesterday. I think he waked when he got wet. Although he cleaned the mess I managed to get a piece of glass to cut my right foot.

Ahh, it hurt.

Today - play for me

Play for me, let me hear your tune...

Do not be shy.

Play for me,

please, play for me.

Cool summer days

Germany 2011

I love this cool weather we have now.

I miss the opportunities to get good pics of sunlit houses,

but I manage to get a lot of things around my desk done.

Fresh morning dew

I love the freshness in this pic.

Seeing it I remember childhood summers running

barefeet on it. Freedom of childhood.

Today I wear shoes when I go out.

My feet miss their freedom.

Today - what do the birds sing?

Georgengarten Hannover 2011

What to do on a free day?

When you have a lot of money you have a lot of options.

Well, I have not. So I took a walk through one old and

beautiful park. I thought it would be beautiful and quiet.

Well, beautiful, yes.

Quiet? No.

A lot of people? No.

What was loud?

A whole orchestra of birds

was singing songs in the trees.

Each one singing his own song.

Rainy day - holiday

Germany 2011

Yesterday was the first day of my holiday.

Three weeks without work.

I wanted to travel - but our buget does not allow that.

Our house renovation project is getting more expensive

than I thought. So yesterday I worked through the price

lists of our projekt. I was looking for reasons

- why did it got so expensive?

I found some reasons and we will ask our builder tomorrow

about it.

On doors

old doorway, Germany 2011

Today I had two incidents with doors - well, until now, you never knew what will happen until midnight...

First incident was at work, when i left the building and could not re-enter it.
The door did not open from the outside. I asked a coworker to try from the inside.
No chance - the door would not open. An electrican working on the facility saw us, told us to stop anything we did. He went with a red head back to some other spot and after the second try he had the door going again.

The second incident was at our soon to be home.
I needed to pee and wanted to close the door properly.
It took several attemps until I could close the door with the key from inside.
And several attemps to get out again, too.

Perhaps I should better stay away from doors until midnight?
